We develop our personal power by claiming it and using it –
To choose the thoughts we allow into our minds and those we don’t allow.
To make conscious choices.
To be true to our Selves.
To set goals – for example to overcome an addiction, learn a new skill, volunteer. To set goals and stick to them. Never give up. If you fall down, pick yourself up and start over, forgiving yourself, believing in yourself, always loving and firm with yourself.
To make plans – daily plans. It’s important to plan leisure time, too, or that just gets frittered away and you don’t feel the benefit of it.
To set up routines and structures such as a time you go to bed and a time you get up, a time to journal, a time to meditate, a time to walk, charging your mobile in the same place at the same time each day, putting keys away in the same place.
To set boundaries such as no screens after 9pm; checking emails once or twice daily but not continuously, similarly with your mobile: to limit social media time.
To choose to start the day with an attitude of strength, focusing on this before you get out of bed in the morning.
To live a life of purpose, a purposeful life.
To keep on keeping on and never give up. To choose to learn and grow and improve and to give of your best and enjoy life.
Personal Power is an attitude. You can choose to hold an attitude of strength or of weakness at any moment.
To develop your personal power you also need to frequently repeat personal power affirmations, with strong positive emotion [this is important] such as –
I am strong, powerful and potent.
I am 100% powerful and decisive in everything I do.
I am powerful, centred and loving at all times.
I am powerful.
I can do anything I set my mind to do.
I am emotionally invulnerable to other people’s negativity. Other people’s negative energy washes off me like water off a duck’s back.
We all have power within us but we need to claim it and use it and use it for good.
One essential personal power practice is to develop the habit of putting a Golden Force Field of protection up around yourself before you get out of bed and anytime negativity is coming up in yourself or from other people. This is like clothing yourself with the energy of love and when you do this regularly and, especially when other people are being negative, it helps you to not react but to choose how you will respond.
Simply say to yourself I put up my Golden Force Field of Love around me and then visualise it and feel it.
